Exercise Activities

Play Time

Dog Boarding Play TimeDoes your dog love to run and play? Play time is a wonderful outdoor exercise activity to give your dog(s) the opportunity to run and play off leash. Sessions may include but are not limited to running, jumping, playing fetch, petting, and cuddling. Each session is approximately 15 minutes and is held privately in one of our five large grass play yards.  Each session is $5.00 and your pet can have up to 3 sessions per day. If you have more than one pet in your family, they all may get together for play time at your request.  Each session for the first pet is $5.00 and each additional dog will receive 50% off of the play time rate ($2.50).

Nature Walks

Dog WalksHave your dog(s) take a leisurely one on one stroll with one of our highly trained staff members. Each walk is approximately 1/2 mile and is a gentle walk over level terrain on our private acreage of grassy fields. This activity is best suited for dogs that are good on a leash and would enjoy a slow paced walk to get out and enjoy the sights and sounds of our country location. Each walk is $7.00 and your pet can have up to 3 walks per day.

Nature Hikes

Dog Nature HikesDoes a leisurely stroll not sound like enough for you pet(s)? Have them go for a hike along our wooded trails up and down hills where they can get more of a "work out" with one of our highly trained staff members. Your pet will see wildlife along the way and will experience the best Wakefield has to offer when it comes to exercise on a leash. Each hike is just over 3/4 mile and is more of a demanding walk over hilly terrain on our private acreage. Each hike is $10.00 and your pet can have 1 hike per day as well as any other activities we offer not exceeding 3 total activities during the day.

Senior Care Package

Senior Dog ServiceFor those dogs that have reached the elderly years of their lives, Wakefield offers a special one on one service to keep your older dog(s) happy while boarding. Wakefield does not encourage boarding for extremely elderly dogs and owners must have prior veterinary consent before their dog(s) can board at our facility. It is difficult to place an age that one would consider to be too old to board due to differences in life spans from breed to breed.  We feel that each owner will know the status of their dog’s health and with consent of a veterinarian those pets can board with us successfully and happily. When your dog is signed up for the senior dog package, they will receive (5) daily one on one sessions with one of our highly trained staff members. Each session consists of a short leash walk to get up on their feet and out for a stretch of their legs and a potty break.  Also included in the package is a premium bed for daily use and special treat time mid day.  The senior dog package is a daily fee of $10.00 and is a service offered for qualified dogs only. If you are not sure if your dog will qualify for this service Wakefield will determine that after assessing your pet’s abilities and needs. If you’re pet demonstrates that they are not able to get up on their feet on their own, this service will become mandatory for that reservation.

Please note: Any dogs signed up for nature walks or hikes must be cooperative on leash. Wakefield reserves the right to stop administering those activities if your dog(s) are deemed to be too difficult to walk or pull excessively. In most cases Wakefield will switch these dogs over to play time activity in lieu of the walks or hikes.
